Coronavirus update: OIC of Washington has established specific measures to help protect our employees from exposure to COVID-19 and to curve the potential spread of the virus in customer homes and our facilities across the State of Washington. We are closely following recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This includes recommendations on social distancing. These temporary practices differ from our normal operating standards; however, we hope to provide the best customer service to our community during these difficult times. If you have appointments scheduled you will be called for a phone intake and will be instructed on documentation needed to submit.
